    I am new to the popup world and am thinking about taking my HW27KS to the beach here in Texas for a week. Will the salt cause any problems to the camper or anything I need to be aware of? Thanks.

    Just like anything else, give it a fresh water rinse when you get home

    I had mine on South Padre regularly. A good freshwater rinse is important.

    Definitely rinse when you return. Also, when you lube surfaces, use silicon dry lube so sand doesn't stick and contaminate the moving surfaces.

    Beach camping is my all-time favorite. Have done it several times in a tent as kids, but only once (fresh water) with my Pup and it was fantastic. Nothing better than dinner and a campfire on a sandy beach, right next to the water!

    That is clearly what it is all about. Sitting by your fire at night and waking in the morning to find it was low tide when you set up. Lol
    That really looks like fun.

    . You mainly have to watch out for your awning. Your camper can handle a good bit of wind. I went through a tropical storm in it once. Only closed it when winds were getting upwards of 50mph. Now if the wind is hitting your camper broadside you may want to move your car to help break the wind up if possible.
